Thinking Public Spaces

BY ANDRÉ SLEIMAN
@ VOL 20 ON SEP 10, 2014

In Thinking Public Spaces, André Sleiman tackles the oh-so-controversial issue of public spaces in Lebanon, and invites the audience to reflect upon the balance to be found between public and private property - and well, to "Move it!"

Defining the difference between what is public, and what is private, perhaps it is best to change that for the good of the public. Paid car parks, paid parks, paid beaches. These are just a few of the consequences of what it means to live in a place of private property.

Detroit Design 139

BY JAKE CHIDESTER
@ VOL 38 ON JUL 31, 2019

Jake Chidester, Direct of Design for Bedrock Detroit, comes to PechaKucha Detroit to discuss the Detroit Design 139 month-long collaborative for September 2019. DD139 began in 2017 and started as an exhibit to create dialogue of the 10 principles of what makes good design and establish that foundation to build on.

2019 hopes to push those definitions and what it means to be a UNESCO City of Design with “Inclusive Futures” in mind, not only in the populated downtown, but in the boroughs of the neighborhoods. City Systems, Economy, Public Spaces and Neighborhood Housing will all be on the topic lists for DD139.
